The one that comes to mind first was a scare on a quail hunt in south Texas. It was in the early 80's and I had a couple of guys with me, and we really got into the birds. I was stalking a wounded bobwhite in the mid-calf grass in the open spots between mesquite trees. I heard a small bush rustle just to my left and I turned, just knowing that it was the bird. It was a huge rattlesnake. He started rattling, but didn't strike. Probably would have hit me above the snakeproof boots if he had struck me. He and I had eye contact at 3 feet. Whew! Yes, I shot him. Then I rattled with the shakes.
